Main description:

The fourth edition of The Behavioral Sciences and Health Care is an
invaluable resource for those educating the next generation of physicians
and other health care providers. This easy-to-use text presents
succinct information about a wide variety of neurological, social, and
psychological sciences from a unified perspective of the complex evolutionary
processes of gene-individual-environmental interaction,
breathing new life into the biopsychosocial model so essential to understanding
human behavior.
The book is organized in sections covering Regulatory Systems, Basic
and Higher Order Homeostatic Systems, Development Through the
Life Cycle, Social and Cultural Issues, Societal and Behavioral Health
Challenges, The Health Care System, Policy, and Economics; The Clinical
Relationship; and Psychopathology. In this edition, numerous
chapters have been extensively revised to include the most up-to-date
information and to integrate the DSM-5 classification. A new chapter
deals with pain and a new appendix on psychological testing has been
Each chapter begins with guidance questions and ends with current
recommended readings, resources, and review questions. A complete
335 question-and-answer multiple choice USMLE-type exam section
not only allows readers to assess how well they have learned the material,
but also highlights important points and adds additional specific
information to supplement the text.
This text is particularly suited for use in systems-based and casebased
curricula that can be used creatively in flipped classrooms
and other active learning environments. Accessible and clear, without
oversimplification, the book facilitates interdisciplinary education,
providing a common core of knowledge applicable in many fields, including
medicine, nursing, psychology, and social work.
